For girls like Sara, access to youth-friendly, non-judgemental contraceptive care and information might feel like a challenge. IPPF knows that lack of access is not a game, and we work for and with young people to ensure they can access the info and healthcare they need, so that they can focus on a better challenge: their future.
These 6 short films illustrate that girls' and young women's access to life-saving sexual and reproductive services and information is a human right. Girls from around the world share their journeys when faced with decisions about sex, pregnancy, abortion and relationships.
An IPPF's initiative, Girls Decide aims to ensure governments around the world to adopt policies that work for girls.
Its objectives are to reduce the risks and complications related to pregnancy and childbirth, including unsafe abortion. These are the most common causes of death among adolescent girls worldwide.
This series documents the consequences of reduced access to contraception and the enormous role family planning plays in empowering women. It's not just children and families that are effected, but education, resources and communities are transformed when choices are enabled.
